Aside from that, I spend too much on books. I bought a Kindle and that actually increased my spending so I'm trying to get at least half of what I read from the library. I also spend a small fortune on tea.

 

Yeah, I'm not too sure about the Kindle. To me ereaders seem to just be the trendy must have gadget of the moment. I buy 99% of my books used for 75 cents or less, so I'm not sure how having to pay for the Kindle and then 10 bucks a pop on books would really benefit me.

 

I got the Sony EReader and have saved a ton in late return fees at the library. Here in another month or so that daggone thing will have paid for itself. What can I say I love to read but have a hard time getting to the library. This is awesome. I have not bought a book since I got it but I have read probably 20 or so over the last couple of months.

Well, whatever works best for you.

I buy my books at thrift stores for 75 cents or less for each. Then trade the ones I don't want on book swap websites, with a cost of about 2.50 to send out a book.

Travel, definitely- Europe in Business Class at least once a year, although I work hard to maximize use of airline and hotel loyalty programs.

 

Followed by tailor-made clothes. I'll probably drop by and get another pair of pants and a jacket made this year and that will run me about $1,500. Still cheaper than the travel budget.

I suppose I spend a good bit on college football and the coincident tailgating and accommodations.

 

clapping.gifSo worth it!

 

Mine would be clothing. I don't buy a lot but what I do buy can be $$.
